    Suicide is Forever

    Twenty-seven percent of high school students said they had 'thought seriously' about killing themselves during the past year. Eight percent said they had actually tried to kill themselves.

    Ten percent of U.S. college students admitted serious thoughts about
    suicide. Seven percent had a suicide plan.

    Statistics also show that kids from high-income families kill themselves as often as those from poor or middle-class families.

    These acts occur during a time when the person is feeling overwhelmingly upset. A situation like a breakup, an unintended pregnancy, the death of a sibling, a fight with a parent or boyfriend or girlfriend, being harmed by abuse or rape, or being victimized in any way can cause a young person to feel desperately upset.

    More than 30,000 Americans commit suicide each year, and 5,000 of these people are teenagers.

    The math never lies...but suicide is forever....
    should there be a penalty or law for some one whom
    causes a person through greed...fraud...
    or false allegations of sexual abuse...where the out come
    is or could be...... this...?
    or should we hold out to the Darwinian process
    of only the strong survive...?
    Or that the profit of the suicide or attempt or thought thereof:
    caused by greed as that above....
    is only a purer from of American capitalism...
    You are either a winner or looser....
    being caught up you must be adversarial...

    Suicide is Forever

    If you are feeling suicidal right now and you want someone to talk to, call 911 in the United States. Stay on the phone with them until someone comes to you.

    Always remember that there are phone numbers you can call 24 hours a day,7 days a week from anywhere in the United States.

    Every 100 minutes another teenager will commit suicide.

    Suicide is the second leading cause of death among people between the ages of 14 and 25 in the United States.

    The following statistics were taken from a recent survey of college and high school students by the CDC:

    Twenty-seven percent of high school students said they had 'thought seriously' about killing themselves during the past year. Eight percent said they had actually tried to kill themselves.

    Ten percent of U.S. college students admitted serious thoughts about suicide. Seven percent had a suicide plan.

    More than 30,000 Americans commit suicide each year, and 5,000 of these people are teenagers.

    Although one of every eight teenagers suffers with depression, the diagnosis is often missed, as depressive symptoms are often mistaken for the typical 'ups and downs' of teenage life. Even in societies where suicide is illegal or taboo, people still kill themselves.

    Most suicides occur in the home between the hours of 3 p.m. and midnight. There are 30 to 50 times as many attempted suicides as completed suicides. Four times as many males complete suicide than females, but female teens attempt suicide twice as frequently as male teenagers.

    Statistics also show that kids from high-income families kill themselves as often as those from poor or middle-class families.

    For every teenage suicide, there are more than 100 unsuccessful attempts. ”Copycat” suicides spread the tragedy even further.

    People who talk about suicide often commit suicide. All talk about suicide should be taken seriously. People often have opposing feelings about whether or not they want to die, so there is always hope that they can change their minds if they receive professional help.

    Many who attempt suicide are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Be aware of this signal. Many attempts are impulsive acts, so be aware of the following warning signs.

    If you suspect a friend is contemplating suicide, take the initiative and just ask him, 'Are you thinking about killing or harming yourself? ' and 'How are you going to kill yourself? ' This will often get him to talk about it. Be straight with him; get right to the subject. Tell an adult, a teacher, a guidance counselor or his parents about your concern for your friend's safety.

    There is a suicide hotline phone number in almost every phone book and on the Internet. In the U.S., call the Suicide & Crisis Hotline at (800) 999-9999. The Suicide National Hotline in the U.S. is (800) 273-8255. Your friend may initially get angry with you, but it may save her life.

    Some people who are suicidal are very good at hiding their emotional pain. That is why it is okay to just come out and ask if you think someone is hurting on the inside. Very often, those people are appearing cheerful and popular on the outside to mask their pain and suicidal thoughts on the inside. See the “Survivor’s Story.'

    Your concern and intervention may be all that are needed to get the person to vent his feelings and change his mind. If someone exhibits self-destructive behavior, this is often a warning sign that he is seriously considering suicide, not just trying to get attention, as was once thought.

    Remember, just because a suicidal person may get professional help and overcome her suicidal feelings, this in itself does not mean those feelings will not return, especially when she is confronted once again by the stress and the problems that caused her to consider suicide in the first place.

    Often, teens think they are immortal. Remind anyone who is talking about killing himself that suicide is very permanent, and that you care if he is here with you in this world.

    The numbers are disturbing to many adults, yet they only partially convey the tragedy of teen and young-adult suicide. Each and every victim leaves behind a void in the hearts of her friends and her school, and an ongoing ache in the hearts of her families and loved ones. I know; I am one of them.

    Some warning signs of suicide are:


    anger or hostility

    inability to feel pleasure

    feeling hopeless

    isolation or withdrawal


    sleeping too much

    loss of appetite

    preoccupation with death

    giving things away that were once valued

    ending significant relationships or commitments (breaking up)

    sudden uplift in mood after depression

    sudden change in behavior or disruptive behavior

    promiscuity (being very sexually active)

    severe outbursts of temper

    excessive substance use

    absence from school or work

    inability to carry out normal tasks of daily life

    inability to laugh

    Some Types of Suicidal Behaviors

    About 60 percent of teen suicides are committed by a hand gun. Teen girls attempt suicide far more often than guys (about nine times more) , but guys are about four times more likely to succeed. Why is this different?

    Male teens tend to use more deadly methods, like guns or hanging themselves. Girls most often attempt suicide by overdosing with medication or through some form of self-injury. Suicide deaths can occur from pills, medications and other harmful substances, especially if these substances are mixed.

    Sometimes a depressed person plans an act of suicide in advance. (Often the planning of an act gives the person some feeling of control.) Most often however, suicide attempts are “impulsive acts.'

    These acts occur during a time when the person is feeling overwhelmingly upset. A situation like a breakup, an unintended pregnancy, the death of a sibling, a fight with a parent or boyfriend or girlfriend, being harmed by abuse or rape, or being victimized in any way can cause a young person to feel desperately upset.

    “Coming out” for homosexual teens can also lead to suicide attempts if that person is no longer accepted by his family or friends.

    In situations such as these, teens may fear humiliation, rejection, social isolation or another consequence they think they can’t handle. Suicide attempts occur under conditions like this because in desperation and confusion, some teens see no other way out.

    Risk Factors For Teenage Suicide:

    Previous Attempts-Teens who attempt suicide remain vulnerable for several years, especially for the first 3 months following an attempt. These people may become very clever about hiding their true feelings. Keep in contact with them.

    Personal Failure-High standards (the teen's or the parents') that are not met, even after only one setback, may set off a downward spiral ending in suicide.

    Recent Loss-Death of close friends or family, divorce, or breakup with a boyfriend or girlfriend may leave a teenager so lost and alone that suicide seems the only option.

    Substance Abuse-Some teens abuse drugs or alcohol to self-medicate overwhelming depression. A combination of depression, substance abuse and lowered impulse control can end in a suicide attempt. This is often a fatal combination.

    Family Handguns-A gun in the house may make it easy for a troubled teen to commit suicide; children of law-enforcement officers have a much higher rate of suicide because of the accessibility of guns. If you think your son or friend is in danger of harming himself, please have someone remove that gun from the home!

    Family Violence-Violence in the home teaches youths that the way to resolve conflict is through violence.

    Lack of Communication-The inability to discuss angry or uncomfortable feelings within the family can lead to suicide. Anger turned inward often leads to depression.

    Remember, if someone you know says, 'I want to kill myself' or 'I'm going to commit suicide, ' take the statements seriously and immediately seek the help of a trusted adult, such as a teacher, nurse, parent or counselor.

    Experts feel it’s OK to ask a depressed teen if she is thinking about suicide. Asking this question provides assurance that somebody cares, and might give the young person the opportunity to talk about her problems. Also, take the time to learn more about depression. You might just save a life. The death of a young person is always a tragedy.

    People with schizophrenia have a higher rate of suicide than the general population. Approximately 10 percent of people with schizophrenia (especially young adult males) commit suicide. Unfortunately, the prediction of suicide in people with schizophrenia can be especially difficult.

    Teens with generalized anxiety disorders may also be at greater risk for suicide attempts.

    Talking About Suicide—One 'Survivor’s Story”

    'Suicide is a subject often taboo to mention, and one that's likely to get a mixture of reactions from people. It's not something I tell most people I meet. In the past, I've overdosed four times and ended up in the hospital having my stomach pumped. I have tried the toaster and the boom box in the bath tub, it doesn't work; I don't recommend it. It’s not worth getting hospitalized for a psychiatric reason. A psychiatric institution is kind of like prison, although I have never been in prison. They tell you when you can eat and where you have to be when. You have no privacy. If I wanted to shave (I am a guy) , I had to have someone with me, to make sure I wouldn't hurt myself. If I wanted to use my acne cleanser pads, the nurse had to give them to me and watch me use them because they have alcohol in them and some people would try to suck on them, just to get their 'fix' of alcohol. Shoelaces are not allowed until they think you are no longer a danger to yourself. So no shoe laces in anyone's sneakers or shoes. You have to go to group therapy, even when you don't want to. It is very regimented.

    For a long time, I've lived with the comfortable 'emergency exit' trap door in my mind, marked with 'Well, if things get too bad, I can always kill myself.' At a particularly low point a couple of years ago, I fantasized daily about hanging myself. It was the final way out. The knowledge that I didn't have to put up with the daily grind and pain of my life if I didn't choose to was sort of a comfort.

    I'm not going to advocate anything to you here one way or the other. I have no right to do that. Nor does anyone else have the right to give such directives to another person. I am just talking about my own experience, because maybe someone will read this who feels suicidal sometimes.

    If you're feeling suicidal, and don't want to feel that way-you know that the feelings are due to the pain, isolation, healing or whatever you're going through, and you want some pointers and things to hold on to, to help to pull you out of your despair-then I suggest you go to a support group and hear what they have to say. You will realize when you are with other people who have been very depressed that you are not alone with your feelings.

    As for me right now? Well, I see a shrink and am in group therapy now. I like the people in the group and their attitudes. But I'm also still here, alive, taking antidepressants, with no definite plans to kill myself at the moment. I have a partner, who is a very large part of the reason why I want to stay alive-I really don't want her to feel the pain of my death. But that doesn't mean that the emergency exit has been sealed up. I just try to live my life one day at a time, and I often find that I do get pleasure out of life, from simple things. And I am glad to still be alive.'

    -Jerry, age 19-California, U.S.A.-2000-

    Update from Jerry-Age 21-Sept.2002:

    'I’m still here on this planet. I’ve got a new job that I like; I still see my shrink-without him, I think I’d be lost or dead. I am on medication, which does help me a lot (it works for me; not pushing it on anyone else) . I’m glad to be able to tell you that being a teen is so difficult at times, I was very close to death at one point, but I’m really happy to still be alive. Sure, I have my moments of 'darkness' and doubts about myself and my future, and then they pass, thanks to some unknown force. Good luck on your journey. If you are feeling really down, call a friend; just keep trying something.'

    (I have read all of these, all are very good) . If you could only read one, I would chose 'No One Saw My Pain', the middle one. It’s about teenage suicide.
